Derek has been golfing since before he could drive a car using clubs that his father, Gene modified to fit his height. “I remember I had a 5 iron and I’d hit that thing several times all the way down the fairway” he recalls. Then he’d grab the shortened putter to putt on the sand greens that the course in Butte, Nebraska had. Some of his fondest memories growing up are riding in the golf cart learning golf from his Dad and Mom, Becky. It was a family affair for sure. He even golfed league with his Grandpa, Merv when he was in high school. These days, when he is not working on Sioux Links, he golfs with his friends and son, Logan and daughter Ashley. “It’s been great teaching them how to play this game that I grew up playing. It is something they will be able to do long into their lives.”
Derek has worked with Sioux Links since 2003. Before taking the reins as Editor, he served as our Creative Director creating advertisements, doing page layout, and providing creative leadership. He now has his hands in every part of Sioux Links from ad sales, featured story writing, social media, and of course graphic design.
